Day 22: Favourite villain.
All the ones who turned good - Impmon, Kouichi at first, Oikawa, Apollomon, to some extent Ikuto, Tailmon... They usually have great arcs for them, which doesn't happen to the really bad ones. Those have to remain all evil ~*~ so it's okay the kids kill them :'| So they tend to be a lot more boring.

Day 23: Least favourite villain.

The D-Reaper, XW's Lilithmon, Adventure's Etemon.

Day 21: A moment that made you angry.

The moment I realized the ending of Tamers, and later the last two episodes of Frontier, would be done by my least favorite animation studios in the franchise. They could've been so much prettier, and yet we got that pointy, fugly, awfully drawn, gross style for Tamers and the second-to-last ep of Frontier, and that rubbery awful style for the end of Frontier - which means none of the motion in the episode felt natural at all, and it looked like everyone was made out of play-doh. NOT AS AWFUL AS THE OTHER ONE, but still pretty shitty, specially for a goddamned finale.

Day 20: A moment that made you sad.

Every goddamned death and sad past and separation and so on. I won't try and list anything this time 'cause it's super spoilery, but ajfjds; the series is full of moments that just break your heaaart.

Day 19: A moment that made you happy.


Sob idk, a billion different ones. Digimon is FULL of moments that made me so happy I ended up sobbing my eyes off. All the endings, all the reunions, all the moments of AWESOME and friendship and adorableness

The ep where they show us how the chosen Digimon came to be, with all the baby Digimon hopping up and the current child!versions saying, that's right! I remember, we were always waiting for them! For [and they name each of the kids]. I just /bawl/ every fucking time

Yamato telling Taichi he's his true friend

The moment the digieggs all fall from the sky in the Town of Beginnings and Takeru's like :DDD! at them

The kids meeting their Digimon again in 02

Ken and Wormmon meeting again ;;;A;;;


Takato & Guilmon's everything

Culumon's everything

All the evolution moments

The ep where Impmon goes back to Mako and Ai and they show him they've stopped fighting, and Impmon's true evolution

Juri telling Impmon she forgives him

Just about every evolution moment in Frontier

Takuya choosing to go back

Kouichi's speech to Cherubimon, saying he's changed and won't lose to the darkness within him (lol this series is cheesy, shush)


Patamon, Lopmon and Protomon meeting again and playing together ;_________________; ♥♥♥

The kids playing with the baby Digimon, socute

The finale with my OTP hug and everyone being all grown up and happy and ahfsdjk ;o;

Ikuto's everything ever

Just about all the evos

Just about everything in XW. That series is so full of funny and awesome moments, it fills me with joy and happiness

Day 17: Best dressed character.

I love Taichi's clothes (specially in the diaboromon movie), and Takuya's, but lol this question. Everyone in this franchise wears ridiculous clothes. I LOVE IT, they're cartoony and distinct and I love the giant hats, gloves and shoes... But come on. Translated to the real world, they're all pretty silly-looking.

Day 18: Worst dressed character.

ANYONE WEARING A DATS UNIFORM, and Miyako while in the Digital world. Wtf is that color scheme, wtf are those pants ajifdskf;

Day 14: Least favourite season.

Savers. I haven't even watched it properly all the way through ._.a; (/missing a couple of eps by the end) I ADORE some things about it - the digivices, Masaru's character and how he's not some perfect super nice kid, Ikuto's everything ever, the involvement with the real world, etc... But the art style looks /terrible/ a lot of the time, the DATS uniforms are hideous, Tohma's a boring-ass gary stu, and Yoshino's easily THE most boring female character ever. I can't even hate her, I just don't care for her either way. She's blaaaand as fuck.

Second one, and I want to mention it because ugh, fandom fucking worships this, would be Tamers, with its awful awful AWFUL pacing and some of the worst "bad animation studio" episodes in the franchise. Omfg look at the ep where Terriermon evolves to Ultimate, for example, it's the fugliest shit ever. This probably happens 'cause that style's all pointy and gross, and Tamers's art style is the roundest and softest of them all :/ But it still makes for some really, really hideous episodes.

Also, what they do with Ruki really pisses me off. Yay, let's have a girl who isn't color-coded pink and sweet and demure and shy and screaming STEREOTYPICAL GIIIIRL all around-- oh wait, no, it's just her issues~*~, by the end of the series she'll have "developed" into a proper female character, squeeing about Culumon and dressing up in frilly dresses!!11 Wtf fuck that shit e_e; God forbid she learns to open up and trust others but doesn't suddenly change from a tomboy to a pretty princess.

I also really dislike how it treats the "secondary" kids. Why make it all about Takato/Ruki/Jianliang, if you're later gonna involve all these kids who're just as awesome and have varied personalities and such, but not let them shine at all? Outside of Juri, and then she shines because of some uber angsty plot (and she's amazing and so strong and ajjkdskjf her backstory and her family), not because of her ability as a Tamer or the powers she gets or anything like that. GIVE THE OTHER KIDS COOL EVOLUTION/SLASH CARD/OP&ED SCENES, DAMN IT.

Day 12: Least favourite digital monster.
Uhhh idk, there're billions of them |DDD; But hrmm. Chuumon, Veggiemon, Etemon, Mercurimon, the... Earth spirit dude from Frontier whose name I can't recall... Lots of them are ugly or obnoxious or both 8|;

Day 13: Least favourite character.

Well, aside from the digimon pointed above and a few assorted others I simply don't care about... Miyako. I've gotten the impression that fandom loves her!!1 and all, but to me she's loud, obnoxious, has a really awful design (wtf are her digital world clothes omg), and I just don't care at all about her story, her dumb emo about her family, her digimon or her anything. I can barely get any sense of her character. I don't hate her or anything, I'm still fond of all the digimon kids and on occasion I do like her, but it's like -_- bahhh. I can't love her like people seem to do.

ETA: OH GOD HOW COULD I FORGET. Special mention in both categories for Bokomon and Neemon, the most useless dumbass Digimon ever. I can't entirely loathe them because they're Patamon's parents (and he loves them, so) and because a friend of mine gets so ragey at them it's funny, but ughhh. wtf were they thinking, attaching those idiots to the main cast? Couldn't we have had something less stupid to tag along with them?

The rest )

Day 11: Who do you think wore the goggles best?

Considering he's among the few who actually uses them for something, I'd say Takato. But his goggles are the fugliest (that yellow, omfg. kill me.) and he was the less leader-like of all the main boys.

So I'm gonna say Taichi. His googles are the coolest, and they end up as a sort of symbol of his leadership >_> Since he hands them down to Daisuke and all...

Special mention to Takuya for his magically regenerating goggles, too.

Day 09: Favourite friendship.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS QUESTION? This show is about THREE THINGS - SELLING TOYS, MONSTERS FIGHTING, AND FRIENDSHIPS. It's dripping with them and they are all fucking amazing. So, so many things in this series are fueled by friendship and love and the bonds between the kids and the Digimon or their families and so on.

I can't just go and freaking pick just one.Go away.

Day 07: A couple you can’t stand.

Mimi/Jyou. I generally don't have much hate for pairings, and like I said before I'm a big multishipper in this franchise - but ugh, this thing. Not only do I think they have zero chemistry (they barely even interact, ffs) and don't seem to really give much of a fuck about each other (even during their little time apart in the Dark Masters arc, they... don't really strike me as omg getting along awesomely or learning much more about each other or anything), it's also so boring. I don't think they complement each other at all, I don't think they're better (or would be) for being around each other, nothing. And everything I've ever seen from fandom re: these two makes them into this obnoxious, cliche'd high-school-like cheerleader/nerd pairing, making them both OOC and unrecognizable and a pair of giant Stus. Bleeeeeeegh.

A sort of close second would be Kouji/Izumi from Frontier, for pretty much the same reasons. And god, the insufferable omg emo prince~*~/princess type fics and stuff. Gross. The only difference is that I do think they seem to care and like each other a bit more, so I think MAYBE in the right hands it could actually be cool. It just... usually ends up in the hands of Junpei haters who think they should be together only because Kouji's pretty and that's all that matters.

Day 06: A couple you wish existed.

Man, this one was tough! I multiship a lot in this franchise and don't really have many pairings I get all OMG WHY AREN'T THEY TOGETHER!1. I tend to ship canon, many of my ships have tons of subtext if they aren't canon, /and/ anything that /is/ canon doesn't really get a ton of attention. The official couples are just a random mention at the end of Zero Two, or are a cute, mostly one-sided crush, or things like that. I don't get all omg, why can't I have THIS SCENE with these other two charas? because of it.

I kinda thought of a few - Daisuke/Ken, Taichi/Yamato/Sora, Kouji/Kouichi, etc, but ahahaha I- I don't think canon would've recognized those. And then there're things like Takeru/Hikari where I still consider it pretty much canon, so ehn who cares if we don't have it spelled out.

So hrmm. Maybe Taiki/anyone? I love that Xros Wars has that "everyone wants Taiki" thing going on, and I love it, but while I mildly ship him with just about everyone he's ever talked to, I don't really have a big big OTP for him. And I love him so hardcore, I think I'd go nuts with fanbratty joy if I could have a ship for him I liked the most.

Day 04: Favourite digital monster.

Patamon & their whole evo line *3* <3333

If it's within the actual series, then... Patamon again (Takeru's, but Frontier's is adorable too), sharing first place with Taiki's Shoutmon, who despite having a design I didn't really like much initially has absolutely won me over with his sheer awesome. I have never cheered so much for a Digimon since the beginning :| ILU, Shoutmon, and I want you to be the Digimon King forever and ever.

Special mentions: Terriermon, Lopmon, Culumon and Beelzebumon ♥

Day 03: Which digivice do you like best?

The Adventure one, partially because of nostalgia and partially because I actually love the design, and the D-Scanner because it has the perfect mix between being an awesome toy (you can scan things *A*) and simply looking cool in the series. And I just adore the color schemes for each chara.

Trying to narrow it down as much as possible: Taichi, Takeru, Kouichi, Taiki.

Aaaand we're finally at the end! I kept delaying this one 'cause I wanted to be in the right mindtrack to answer it.

CLAMP 30 day meme

+ Day 30: How has CLAMP changed your life?

Man. Well, aside from having become my absolutely number one fandom, with everything that means - all the shenanigans from modding comms to getting into stupid arguments and so on... There's Kiseki. Which started out as an excuse to play a couple of characters, but years and years later is still standing. Through this game I met some of my best friends right now, and I have had the most ridiculous fun, be it in the actual games or the game's chat. Far too many nights spent laughing until I couldn't breathe. This game's so, so important and precious to me.

And it wouldn't exist without CLAMP. So I have them to thank for that.

The rest )

And now, because I cannot just quit these memes, have yet another one for another of my major fandoms.

Digimon 30 days meme

Day 01: How old were you when you first discovered Digimon?

I had to be twelve or thirteen. I can't remember the exact date, but what I do remember is mom asking me and my brother what was it we were singing along to... We were singing the dub's version of Butter-Fly as the series aired. So that's an easy way to know how old I had to be.
